Description

This is a double track junction. It is the eastern apex of a triangular of lines formed with Larbert Junction to the north and Carmuirs West Junction to the west.

The junction was formed in 1882 with the opening of a Caledonian Railway curve from Carmuirs West Junction which met the 1850 Stirlingshire Midland Junction Railway built to connect the Edinburgh and Glasgow Railway to the Scottish Central Railway via Falkirk and its industries.

The signal box opened with the junction. It was on the south side of the junction.

The box took over control of Carmuirs West Junction in 2011.

The box closed in 2017, replaced by the Edinburgh Signalling Centre.
